Spring 2020 Immigration Clinical Student
Amber put her remarkable dedication to work to a mountain of different client matters this semester. Her work ranged from researching bars to asylum for a victim of child sexual abuse, to arguing that an undocumented victim of crime should not be barred by her own petty criminal history from obtaining lawful status, and from writing a motion to terminate removal proceedings against a client who has been a lawful resident of the U.S. since the 1980s, to helping young teenage asylees apply for permanent residence (and putting them expertly at ease throughout the process!). Amber tackled new challenges with curiosity, insight, and infectious enthusiasm, and contributed valuably to our group’s dynamic with her optimism and thoughtful perspectives.
